At Upwey South Primary School we are always looking to identify new ways that we can enhance the learning resources available to our students. As such we have recently purchased a subscription for Sunshine Online Books. This web based resource provides books and activities for students to use both in the classroom and at home. As part of the subscription it allows parents and teachers to access:
- Over 550 levelled books to supplement the books students are already using
- Over 1000 interactive activities to support learning in Literacy and Numeracy
- High frequency word lists
- Extra fiction and non-fiction titles in the “Bookshelf” area levelled to the students’ needs
- Letter blends resources
- Word Families resources
- Indigenous Titles
- Numeracy activities
The Junior School Council and our School Captains have written, directed and filmed a tour of our wonderful school. We hope you enjoy it!
Student Wellbeing at all levels is a priority at Upwey South Primary School. If children are unhappy or worried about something they cannot learn effectively. We observe and listen to our students and we support them on a daily basis. We encourage supportive friendships and we put the welfare and safety of our students before anything else.
At Upwey South Primary School we are dedicated to inspiring young children to become passionate about their future. We are here to nurture our students and together with their families support them to grow into happy, well-rounded and competent young people who will be very well-prepared for life.
We create opportunities for learning, leadership and personal growth through the power of education. We offer a myriad of learning opportunities for our students using the tools of exploration, instruction and experience so that they are literate, numerate, and socially, technologically and ecologically confident by the time they graduate and move on to secondary school.
Our aspiration is to continue our tradition of educational excellence; to advance success patterns in all areas throughout our school and to expand our school spirit, both practically and socially, into the wider community.
And finally, we will continue to champion the values of Respect, Responsibility and Resilience for all who pass through our gates.
